Hi all

I'm looking to buy a new laptop, am looking for something light as I am likely to lug it back and forth to work daily.

I have my eye on Toshiba Portege R500-11Z, but it's twice the price of the smaller Samsungs (although it's also half the weight and has a much longer battery life).

Thoughts, anyone? Does any one own at 12-inch or less that they're happy with (and I'm leery of the Vaios now because of the recall)

cheers

Suggest you stick to one forum for advice on this.
I've already posted on this at another place!

Did you mean to one topic post? Because that was worded terrible. LOL

Back to topic.

I own a MSI Wind which is a 10 inch laptop. They're great for using in short bursts, like on the train or in cafes. But I wouldn't recommend using a laptop with a screen below 15 inches for prolonged usage. Because it starts to strain your eyes after awhile.

I meant one forum as sloan_5 has posted in a few other forums on the net.

Yes, I did ask in two or three forums. I didn't realize that there would be a problem with that -- why should there be? Doesn't it increase the chance of my getting a response?

As it happens, I appreciate all constructive responses....

cheers all
